Happy Halloween!

OK, here are the pumpkins I got for the contest a few weeks ago. Not as many as I had hoped for.
First up is the original. I understand there is a new and improved version of this, but I haven’t seen it yet.

And here are the rest.

I also got one other entry which really isn’t a carved pumpkin, but I said I would include it, so here ya go.


Now, I have a pretty good idea which one I think should win, but who knows, I might be swayed by some comments, so I’ll wait a day or so to announce the winner. I might even allow a late entry to slip in if you did a pumpkin and didn’t send me a picture yet.

Halloween Fun

OK, something just for fun for a change. Here’s a Halloween Jack O’ Lantern carved by CCDL member Dave O. Is this cool or what?

I decided to run a little contest, just for fun. Let’s see YOUR CCDL or pro 2nd Amendment jack o’ lantern or carved pumpkin. Best one, as determined by me will win a prize.
Prize to be determined by me (since I’m paying for it), depending on how many entries we get. More entries = better prize.

Email a photo of your pumpkin to blog@CCDL.us with the subject: PUMPKIN. I’ll take entries up until October 30, 2013 and then post them all here for Halloween.

UPDATE: A CCDL member has offered a brick of .22 ammo as a prize to the winner if we get enough entries. So get carving!
